Scope of the Workshop

The International Workshop on Complex Networks and their Applications aims
at bringing together researchers and practitioners from different science
communities working on areas related to complex networks. Two types of
contributions are welcome: theoretical developments arising from practical
problems, and case studies where methodologies are applied.
Both contributions are aimed at stimulating the interaction between
theoreticians and practitioners.

Authors are encouraged to submit both theoretical and applied papers on
their research in complex networks. Topics for the workshop include, but
are not limited to:

Models of Complex Networks
Structural Network Properties and Analysis
Complex Networks and Epidemics
Community Structure in Networks
Community Discovery in Complex Networks
Motif Discovery in Complex Networks
Complex Networks Mining
Dynamics and Evolution Patterns of Complex Networks
Link Prediction
Multiplex Networks
Network Controllability
Synchronization in Networks
Structural Network Properties and Analysis
Algorithms for Complex Network Analysis
Visual Representation of Complex Networks
Applications of Complex Network Analysis
Large-scale Graph Analytics
Social Reputation, Influence, and Trust
Information Spreading in Social Media
Rumour and Viral Marketing in Social Networks
Recommendation Systems and Complex Networks

Full papers and Extended Abstracts are welcome. Both type of
contributions can be accepted either for oral or poster presentation.

Full papers that, at the time of submission, are under review for or have
already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or
conference will not be accepted. This restriction does not apply to
extended abstracts.


Accepted Extended abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts (with ISBN) together with the abstracts of the keynote presentations.

Accepted Full papers will be included in the workshop proceedings edited by Springer. Authors will be required to transfer copyright to Springer. The proceedings are published on the Studies in Computational Intelligence Series (
